Looking after the wellbeing of our children is an important part of our role as educators. To be effective in the classroom, we need children to be ready to learn when they arrive. That starts with making sure their basic needs are being met, at home and in the academy.

We also understand that families and the wider community will look to us for support, so rest assured we are here to help. If you have concerns about your child, or your family needs support, contact the academy in confidence.

Key contacts

For general day-to-day enquiries, you should speak to your child’s class teacher first. If your message is urgent, or when the academy is closed, please email primary@diverse-ac.org.uk

Further support

Children’s Centre Services

The Children’s Centre Service understand that being a mum or dad is sometimes hard, so they want you to get in touch if you need some support, before little problems grow into bigger issues.

Happy Maps

Primary school can sometimes be as stressful for parents as it is for children and brings with it a whole new set of challenges – coping with school toilets, new friends, new routines and separation anxiety to name a few.

If your child is already some way through primary school there may be other stresses with friendship problems, excessive gaming or perhaps anxiety about moving up to secondary school. Luckily there is a lot of support available for families including websites, books, videos, helplines, and on-line chat options.

Health for kids

Health for Kids introduces a new and different way for primary school children to learn about their health.

All the content has been produced by health experts, often re-written from other trusted NHS information such as NHS Choices. The website is primarily a health promotion website, covering subjects that promote a healthy body and mind.
